Coast Guard, San Mateo County Sheriff Dive on Vessel Wreckage

SAN FRANCISCO- The Coast Guard, working in partnership with the San Mateo Country Sheriff’s Department Dive Team and members of the San Francisco Police Department, has located what is believed to be the wreckage of the sailing vessel “Daisy.” This afternoon at approximately 1 p.m., the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Dive Team and the Coast Guard Cutter SOCKEYE located a portion of the vessel underwater using side sonar equipment. The wreckage was located approximately 3 nautical miles west of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Divers from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office dove on the wreckage and reported no persons found among the underwater debris.

Weather limitations for the sonar equipment and for diving operations prevented the operation from occurring earlier in the week.

The Coast Guard and its partner agencies conducted an extensive search Saturday and Sunday after the sailing vessel “Daisy” was reported overdue from a race to the sea buoy and back. Coast Guard Investigators have been actively pursuing any information related to the “Daisy’s” disappearance, and have been tracking down debris believed to be related to the case.

A final determination has not been made as to what happened to the “Daisy.” The Coast Guard is continuing an inquiry into what may have caused the vessel to sink.
